Cleaning House Quotes

These cleaning house did make me laugh – and think!


Housekeeping is like being caught in a revolving door. – Marcelene Cox 

Oh my goodness of all the cleaning house quotes  this one nails it – it can feel ( and actually is never ending) especially right now whilst my kids are off school it feel like my house is never clean because it doesn’t even stay that way for a few hours. It is so frustrating.

This is why I have a cleaner, because every single week without fail my home needs re-cleaning and the frustration of it drives me mad.  Take a look here if you are looking for  house cleaning in Sydney I have to say getting a regular cleaner was one of the smartest decision I have ever had.




Everybody wants to save the earth; no one wants to help mom do the dishes. – P.J. O’Rourke

Oh this one – of all he cleaning house quotes is so true for me -my kids are reluctant helpers in the kitchen and used to moan so much that it put me off asking them. One day though I had a change of heart and decided it was just terrible that after a hard day at work I was doing the chores alone.

So, to that end I simply made a timetable. One does it one day and one does it next, they do it with me we put on music or have a chat and it has just become routine. Because it is routine they no longer moan despite the fact they are doing the dishes way more than before. Isn’t that interesting?


Cleaning House Quotes


I make no secret of the fact that I would rather lie on a sofa than sweep beneath it. – Shirley Conran

 I am not  an enthusiastic cleaner hence why I actually have a cleaner (see above) . It just makes me yawn even contemplating cleaning my house and clean home quotes do help me with my motivation

Only 2 things help, pumping music and  a limited time. If I know I have just 30 minutes to really tidy downstairs I am much more efficient and enthused than if I have all day. Funny!  Though truth be told even with the music and time issue I would still always rather someone else did the cleaning. Cleaning house quotes are much need here


My theory on housework is, if the item doesn’t multiply, smell, catch fire, or block the refrigerator door, let it be. No one else cares. Why should you? – Erma Bombeck ( Hmmm some cleaning house quotes don’t work for us all)

But I do care.

 I like my house to look and smell gorgeous, for it to be a beautiful environment for my children to grow in and a welcome stylish, lovely space for visitrs to come. So yes, unlike Erma I DO really care I’m just a bit lazy is all.

Cleaning House Quotes


First rule of house cleaning while listening to music: the toilet brush is never the microphone.

Goes with out saying really this one doesn’t it! 


My daughter wanted a Cinderella themed party so I invited all her friends over and made them clean the house.

Now that is genius in my opinion. It has never ever seemed to work though when there had been a party at our house and I have suggested everybody clean up a little before they go. Nope. no one is ever ‘keen’ to give my suggestion a try. Such a shame. 

I hope these cleaning house quotes have made you giggle.
